Feminism Has Failed: Monica Dux

Listen to Feminism Has Failed: Monica Dux

“Real feminism is constantly evolving and splintering. It’s broad. It’s dynamic. Feminism attempts to articulate and redress injustices against women in a dazzling variety of contexts,” Monica Dux declares as she argues against the premise of the Intelligence Squared Debate: Feminism Has Failed.

As Dux sees it feminism is flourishing, despite the predictions of a “post-feminist” age by “enlightened social critic and feminist scholar John Winston Howard”. She says the diversity of feminist debates and issues is sign of the movement’s health.


Monica Dux also presented a Lunchbox/Soapbox: The Happy Gestator which wittily dissects the expectations placed on women as mothers.
